Kids Holiday Gift Guide – Tribute.ca
It’s that time of year again — with Christmas approaching, it’s time to start looking at those long lists your kids have written for Santa. We’ve taken a look at what’s available this holiday season for kids of all ages, and the toys just get better each year. From annual favorites such as the Rubik’s Cube to new and innovative toys that teach your children computer programming in a fun and entertaining way, there’s something for everyone!
Rubik’s Cube has been a favorite toy for years, but the company never stops finding inventive ways to update the cube. This year, there’s a new design called Rubik’s Spark. Larger than the original Rubik’s Cube and designed for ages 6 to 11, Rubik’s Spark has flashing cubes and is programmed with six skill challenging games that have different levels. We had our resident Rubik’s Cube expert, Dexter, check it out and he gave it two thumbs up, saying it’s not only great fun, but will help kids develop motor skills. Suggested Retail price: $29.99
We tried out the Kidizoom Smart Watch DX from Vtech and we absolutely love this product. Last year we reviewed the Kidizoom Action Cam — a Go-Pro-type camera for kids — and this new product is just as cool. First off, it’s a watch, with so many displays (both analog and digital) that we lost count. In addition, it’s got a video cam, a camera, a voice recorder, video games, dance, run and jump rope games in which the character onscreen (you choose the character) follows your movement, a calculator, calendar, pedometer, alarm, stopwatch, timer, and the ability to download more content. You can also see your videos/photos on the watch or play them back on your computer. It comes with a micro USB cable for easy battery recharging. Recommended for
